These glasses are precision instruments. The quality of the lenses is incredible and they are really well made. But most of all, they are cool! Real head-turners! I never fail to get a "cool sunglasses" comment from someone when I am wearing them.

These sunglasses are absolutely beautiful. I was going to give it 4 stars due to the lack of a polish. I had to clean off some dirty spots myself. But Sean's stellar customer service had me giving this the full 5.

The glasses are quality, once adjusted are comfortable. The hard-case is a tight fit though.

I had been impatientlying awaiting my glasses since I originally saw and supported the campaign. Upon receipt I took a look at them and they looked to be well made. My wife thought they looked great and I looked great in them (I was a bit worried because those are not my typical style). I ride motorcycles, so of course the first thing I did was hoping on the bike and head out. They worked great on the bike. The wrap around earpieces are awesome as I have had eye protection fly off my face while turning my head going down the road. No worries there. They provide good peripheral vision even with the mesh sides. The one complaint I have is that it is hard to scratch your eyes on the bike with these on. Not a huge deal, but a deal. I recieved many compliments on them so far. The only issue I have with the glasses and the reason they didn't get a 5 is the mesh has already become a little bent and separated from the side. I take care of my gear, I place these in their case when not in use. I can't think of a time that I could have caused that. Hopefully it is just my pair. I plan to order another pair.

I gotta say I love these glasses. Although I will have to admit that I've been called anything from a steampunk Elton John, to Ozzy, and even John Lennon. Aside from that, the feedback I've received from people have been positive. The glasses are lightweight, durable, and pretty comfortable after adjusting them. Although my biggest issue I have is that they don't block the sun as much as I'd hoped (I got the glass amber lenses if that matters). Regardless of that, I'm glad I ordered them. The wait was long, but it was worth it.

BEST DAMN Sunglasses EVER!!!

Being a Guy that Demands Quality and having owned Ray Bans, Oakley's, and Wiley X these are the Best Damn Sunglasses I have ever owned. Tough with Rugged Styling and great comfort. They are so good that I now own 3 pair.

Mark on the glass?

★★★★☆
4 5 1
The glasses are just as great as described and shown. My only concern is that the glass might get marked when folded. I do not think the plastic will protect the glass from getting marks on it. One of my cases did not have the magnet. It will therefore not close!

Stellar glasses

I've worn these for several weeks now and, with a little adjustment, they fit perfectly. The frames are durable and stainless, the lenses are top optic quality and the side shields are actually somewhat functional as they help keep your eyes from drying out when you're rolling down the interstate with the window down. I get compliments on these glasses everywhere I go!

These glasses are very well made, first of all. The fit is perfect, and it looks good on every person who tries them on (a LOT of people have asked me to try them on, haha). The flexible ear hooks are great at preventing the glasses from slipping down my nose, but we'll see if the summer heat and humidity in NY affects that at all. The hard case is also very well constructed and slim (fits great in a medium-sized purse), so I never have to worry about the structural integrity of the glasses. All in all, I'm thrilled with my purchase. Unlike some other crowd funding products, these were totally worth the wait. They're probably the closest I will get to Sarah Connor's glasses in Terminator 2, and I can't wait to use these with my Halloween costume! Thanks, Sean!

Starting with the packaging, the box and the carrying case you perceive a 1st class product. But when you actually see them, wao, they are high quality product. On the other side, there is a little gap between the side screen and the lense frame. I guess you will correct that in the future. Congratulations! Guys, buy with confidence!

The best!

I have been looking for a pair of these for years and years. As soon as I saw an ad for them, I supported asap. Well worth the wait. The fit like a glove, (after some minor adjusting like the insert suggests) and they are like another part of my body. Do yourself a favor, and buy as many as you can in all the different lense styles!

Love these!

When I first donated, I was a bit skeptical about both the comfort and quality. After receiving them, I was pleasantly surprised. Not only are they very cool looking, but they're surprisingly comfortable to wear all day, even with headphones over the ears. And they look awesome! Definitely plan on getting a second pair. My only critique is that they're a little bulky to carry when not wearing them, but that's a small price to pay.

Exceededs expectations

They are som very well made glasses. The polarized glass is exceptional. They are a sublime vintage reproduction made with modern materials that is practical as well. If I had to criticize anything it's that being stainless steel and glass they are heavyish. I don't have a problem with that because I knew it going in and the fact they are unlike anything else out there and are apparently made to the same quality specs as a fancy name "R.B." If the look suits you buy with confidence. These are not a cheap gimmic but are modestly priced, remarkably.

The Best!

I'm not a big of sunglasses, I've wore some and i know all the main brands, but no sunglasses attracted my attention. The design is great, it's like something from a steampunk story which i love. I won't lie it can be a bit uncomfortable especially when you wear it for a long period of time. With few adjustments I made these sunglasses became one of the best things I've ever bought.

I've wanted a pair of sunglasses with side shields ever since I saw Linda Hamilton's in Terminator 2. Finally found these! My glasses are great quality, not cheap costume knockoffs. I will be rocking these for years. Thank you O'Riginals!

When compared to vintage glasses of the same style O'Riginals pass the test. As a cosplayer and collector I was jealous of my friends with classic glasses like sterling 23s. Now that I have mine I am the envy of the show. I compared mine directly to the original and the attention to detail is remarkable.

It's in the details

★★★★★

Of the fair number projects I've contributed towards, this is without question the one I am most proud to have supported. The glasses are unique, yet functional and convey a style and sense of character you just won't find anywhere else. I am a big fan of people that understand the importance of the small things. That's what I love about the company and it shows in the product. Unlike most sunglasses that follow very similar shape characteristics, these have qualities that translate well to a variety of head and face shapes. This appears to come, at least somewhat, from the design - simple shapes (circular) that is consistently carried throughout (in the ear pieces and sides, for example). These shapes are represented in our faces, eyes, noes, etc. Very different from today's popular, yet sporty "bug-eyed" sunglasses that you'll see everywhere else. The style fits most everyone, rather than a choice few. You can see that there was careful thought put in to "how they feel" and "how they make you feel." Though difficult to convey in writing, they feel at once modern and antiquated, but in a way that brings forth nothing but a confident style. It's not fair to say that they look the same on anyone, since they really bring out a different aspect of character, at least in my point of view. These shades truly work for most anyone. From the quality design, to construction, the front folding ear pieces to the surprisingly strong side vents, I can only say "Awesome!" The beauty is really in the details. You can just see that there was a lot of care to the craftsmanship and design. It was well worth the (not unreasonable) wait. If you are hesitant, I'd say "go ahead, try them. If you are not exactly sure about making the purchase, I'd say "no regrets, buy them". You'll not only be thrilled, but have a lot of fun conversations about them with friends and strangers alike.

Best shades ever made

I started following OTC after seeing the owners refurbishment of vintage eyewear online hoping to someday purchase a pair. He asked his facebook followers if there'd be any interest in doing a vintage inspired new product and there was an out pouring of support. As soon as the funding page went up I ordered 3 pairs and they are the best sunglasses I've ever had. Durable, well made, beautiful and very very cool. I get asked about em all the time and will be ordering more soon.

U can't expect more than these pair, I got the sport version in silver/mirror. All the people i've crossed in the street/friends have stop me and ask me where did i get them? They look so cool and so unique. Thanks to the creator honestly, this guy deserves a lot of credit to have the balls to finally made a pair of sunglasses that are so different than the regular/fancy and traditional ones.

Awesome glasses

I got the glass lenses in my glasses and these lenses are better than my Oakleys. I really like the wire rim frames because they can be tweaked for the perfect custom fit. The stainless steel frames also look very nice. I would recommend these glasses to anyone.

The glasses I've been searching for

★★★★★

I have searched for years for glasses like these, but all that was out there in this style were either prohibitively expensive or embarrassingly cheap. I was thrilled when I saw the crowdfunding campaign for exactly what I was looking for at a reasonable price. The build quality is every bit as good as my Oakleys and the classic wire-frame design means a perfect fit for anyone. Every time I wear them, people comment or stop me to ask where they can get a pair for themselves. A+, 10/10 Can't say enough!

I love them

Seattle, where I live, has a reputation of purportedly being the place in the US with the highest per capita sunglass sales, the theory being that we lose them between sunny days. I don't know if this is true or not, but this is one pair of glasses I'd hate to lose. The retro styling influenced by welding goggles of the 1920s is clear, the glass is polarized and just dark enough - I wish now that I'd bought more, just in case.

Ski Great!!

Received mine last week and took them skiing with me this weekend. One of the best pair of sunglasses I’ve ever skied in. the fit was great and the wire frames kept them in place. Years ago i had a pair of “glacier glasses” with the leather shields. Theses were much better with the wire mesh shields.

Excellent build quality

Just got my Sterling 23's in the mail the other day. They fit well, feel sturdy and well made, and form well to my face. They're rapidly becoming my favorite driving glasses, as the side shields also cuts a lot of the side glare from sunrise/sunsets. All in all, I'm very excited about them, and they have a unique and dashing look to boot!
